The Moroccan storm is here… France finally reached the final
- on Dec 15, 2022
France, which is aiming for a second consecutive championship, calmed Morocco’s storm and reached the final. France will face Messi-led Argentina in the final.
First of all, I am reporter Yoo Byung-min.
Amidst the unilateral support of more than 50,000 Moroccan spectators, France broke through Morocco’s impenetrable defense wall and scored the opening goal with a penetrating pass in the fourth minute of the game.
When Mbappe’s shot following Griezmann’s cross hit a defender, Theo Hernandez flew up and finished it with his left foot.
This is Morocco’s second goal in the tournament.
Morocco then pressed France with over 60% possession, but goalkeeper Lloris’s save saved, and Elyamik’s out-of-the-box overhead kick was blocked by the post and continued to drag as it hit the ground.
France, who had not been able to escape easily, as Giroud’s shot bounced off the post, created an opportunity with Mbappe’s bold break through the defensive forest in the 34th minute of the second half and scored a lucky wedge goal.
When Mbappe’s shot hit a defender and deflected, Muani lightly shook the net.
Morocco did not give up and looked for a comeback goal, but luck did not follow until the end, with the last shot on goal landing at the feet of a French defender. 메이저사이트

Morocco, which has continued its great run by beating champions from Belgium, Spain and Portugal, with a different dimension of defensive football, stopped the storm at the threshold of the semifinals, but received a big round of applause and the players cheered for the fans. I bowed and said thanks.
